the 1.6 in the focus is only 100bhp so its hardly fast especially with more than 2 people in it, rember the focus is a big heavy car also the auto box is very juicy i bet you wont avarage more than 30 mpg, if i were you id get the 2.0 tdci auto as its more economical ALOT faster and also has the latest type of auto box , its a twin clutch witch means it changes cogs very smoothly :) or go for a new shape fiesta 2008 onwards as the 1.4 engine in that is also a 100bhp but the car wieghs about 200 kgs less :)

You wont notice the weight in the 100 bhp Focus as they pull really well. I drove my estate down to South of France and back fully loaded without any problems. The gearing is just right on the Mk 2.5. However, saying that, I would never have an auto with an engine size of less than 1.8 as they are no fun to drive with the smaller engine and you will waste fuel.
